Welcome to the BZPower Lexicon of Terms. Here, you'll find definitions and descriptions of terms used throughout BZPower. You can also submit new terms and have old terms updated.
Some terms that are no longer used on BZPower have been taken out of this topic, but they can still be found in the original or archived topics linked above. Terms used commonly in the blogs can be found in the Blog Lexicon. If you're looking for more information about something Bionicle-related that isn't present here, you can check out BS01. You can also find Hero Factory-related information on HS01.

What can be contributed?
You can submit new terms and definitions to the Lexicon, and you can submit modifications to outdated terms (as well as pointing out unused terms for removal). All of these terms need to be BZPower-related. Please do not PM me or the General Discussion staff with terms and updates, though; post them here.

What can't be contributed?
You cannot submit any new member names. No Bionicle terms go here unless they are related to BZPower (like the Vahi, as a spinny). You also can't submit abbreviations that you made up on the spot.

Updated the list. If someone has another, more common, definition for "NPU," please post.Tomaku, "NPU" wasn't there because nobody has suggested it and I've never heard it before (probably because I don't MOC). If there's a term that you think should be in this topic, it would be appreciated if you would provide a definition, because there's always a chance that I won't know it.

UN I've seen used for username. Also, TOS is also used for Terms of Service on various websites LEGO-related. TBH (to be honest) would also be good to add, since a lot of people use it here. Oh, and HF, for Hero Factory.EDIT: TLG (The LEGO Group) should definitely be added.

MU, which is an abbreviation for Matoran Universe, and GB, short for Great Being, should probably be added.

On the BZPRPG wikia we us NBZP to refer to the new BZPRPG.

Expanding on this, the pre-reboot BZPRPG (Pre-2011), is referred to as the Old BZPRPG.

Expand-expanding on this, NBZP usually refers to the period between the reboot and the Great Downtime. BZ-III or BZIII refers to the third and current iteration of the game.

I think you need TSO (The Shadowed One). People often say it when referring to him in S&T, and it took me a little bit to figure out (that, or I'm just slow  :P ).
